Geoff Thorne joins Avalere Health as Chief Technology Officer to drive innovation for clients


The experienced executive will expand our cross-functional omnichannel, data and analytics, and technology offerings, developing effective solutions to meet our clients’ evolving needs.

Geoff Thorne has joined Avalere Health as our new Chief Technology Officer. He will focus on refining our technology and strategy offerings to solve complex challenges for our biopharmaceutical, medical technology, and wellness clients.

“The depth and breadth of our technology product offerings continue to grow, especially in analytics and data-driven marketing, where we are making great strides to develop innovative approaches in customer-targeting for our clients,” said Gail Flockhart, Chief Commercial Officer. “With roots in client delivery, passion for innovation, and a belief in cross-functional team collaboration, Geoff is well-positioned to drive our technology strategy forward to serve the needs of our clients. He will also ensure the expansion of our best-in-class products and services for clients across the pre-commercial and commercial lifecycle of therapies and services.”

In his previous role at Digitas Health, Geoff served as the lead technical executive, building the company’s technology capabilities and scaling client engagements. He also led a team of more than 70 technologists focused on client delivery while creating a collaborative culture.

“I have a deep appreciation for technologically advanced organizations,” said Geoff. “It’s one of the reasons that attracted me to Avalere Health, where recent acquisitions have really bolstered the company’s ambitions in this area. My vision is to continue Avalere Health’s phase of growth by shaping, expanding, and amplifying the company’s data, analytics, and technology offerings. In today’s healthcare ecosystem, data and technology play such a profound role in our clients’ success. Therefore, we will be relentlessly focusing on delivering technology solutions that enable our clients to ultimately improve health outcomes.”

According to Jon Koch, CEO: “There’s been a major shift in how to best use data-driven intelligence and omnichannel experience platforms to deliver the right communication to the right audiences through the right channel at the right moment. As our industry experiences growth and change, Geoff will be working closely with our Avalere Health teams to navigate these changes and provide a critical voice in influencing how we can drive better health outcomes for patients and greater business results for our clients.”

Geoff will be based in our Horsham, Pennsylvania, office but will work with teams across our 20 locations spanning North America, Europe, and Asia.
